Hi I have one of these and a Magnavox DVD Recorder too. I can not seem to find a good channel in the NYC Metro Area that provides a good time signal for these units. Does Anyone Know a Good Channel out of NYC, NY I am in Central NJ on Cablevision. Or what procedure should I follow? The channels I select for time all show the wrong time and the Philips says they may not work properly. Thank You TBoneit

Same as my experience while on cable... they did not send time signals through from the stations. For a short time while with one of the five cablecos I had, I did get a great time signal from my local FOX station.

Once I switched to antenna, EVERY channel has a good time signal.

Hi Wajo I had thought that the NYC area would have good time signals. I wonder how things are going to go with the cable company now that they have been bought. That is disapointing to hear. I guess I will have to use a manual clock and keep an eye on it now that the new TV Season is upon us and of course the few shows I still watch conflict with new shows I want to check out. Thank You for the Answer TBoneit
